Pharmacy Residency Program

Overview

The Lovelace Medical Center PGY1 pharmacy residency program is a year-long, post graduate training program focused on developing residents into competent and productive clinical pharmacists. The program offers a wide variety of experiences in direct patient care, pharmacy operations, as well as leadership. The broad range of learning experiences allows residents to gain experiences in numerous settings, interacting with diverse patient populations, managing a variety of disease states, and gaining exposure to a range of patient problems. Our residents are mentored by highly trained and experienced pharmacists who are leaders in their fields. By the completion of the program, our residents will be well-rounded practitioners who are prepared to practice independently as clinical pharmacists, eligible for board certification, and capable of pursuing advanced training in PGY2 residencies or fellowships.
